4 x 4 Australia - - 4cast News And Views -

4 X4 AUS­TRALIA spent a week­end as guests of Iron­man 4x4 at the grand open­ing of Cairns to Cape 4x4, a four-wheel drive spe­cial­ist for­merly known as Nathan Lock­yer 4x4. Nathan Lock­yer is a bit of a me­chan­i­cal leg­end in Far North Queens­land and folks come from all around to have him work on and main­tain their 4x4s. Nathan and his wife Lana have taken a big step and moved from their old work­shop to a new pur­pose-built fa­cil­ity.

The new store fea­tures a huge show­room, with all the lat­est prod­ucts from Iron­man 4x4 and other lead­ing brands on dis­play. There’s also friendly staff on-hand who know their stuff and are all too will­ing to help you get the right gear for your ve­hi­cle.

Out the back are four work bays with new hoists, a spe­cialised 4x4 wheel align­ment rig, and rack­ing for prod­ucts. The shop has two qual­i­fied me­chan­ics and two fit­ters on staff so that C2C can han­dle all your 4x4 needs, in­clud­ing ac­ces­sory in­stal­la­tion, sus­pen­sion work, me­chan­i­cal re­pairs, diff and gear­box re­builds and pre­trip in­spec­tions. This makes C2C the per­fect last-minute stopover on your way to The Cape to en­sure your 4x4 is up to the chal­lenge.

Open­ing week­end prices saw Iron­man fridges, winches and other ac­ces­sories run­ning out the door, with plenty of book­ings to keep the boys in the shop busy for the next few months. There was a jump­ing cas­tle for the kids, a sausage siz­zle manned by the Cairns Surf Life Sav­ing Club, and a great dis­play of Iron­man ve­hi­cles from around the coun­try.

De­spite the wet weather, the crowds were con­stant across the week­end, and one lucky fella even won him­self a brand new three-me­tre Quin­trex Tin­nie just for be­ing there and en­ter­ing the draw!

Cairns to Cape 4x4 is lo­cated at 116 Au­muller Street, Bun­ga­low, in Cairns. You can find them on­line at www.cairn­sto­cape4x4.com, or call the friendly staff on (07) 4053 5900. Be sure to check them out on your next trip north!
